Tea Review: Modern Tea Girl’s Fig Peach Oolong from Amoda Tea’s Tasting Box

January 29, 2015


“The Modern Tea Girl brand is more than just delicious teas. It’s a whole line of unique tea and tea-inspired products to fit the lifestyle of a modern tea girl. Feminine and fun, Modern Tea Girl offers hand-crafted teas, tea-inspired dry frosting mixes, modern tea tools, tea charms and other fun ways to experience and share tea.” I was able to try this oolong thanks to Amoda Tea and their Holiday Tasting Box. You can learn more about them in my previous blog post here.

Ingredients:Se Chung Oolong, Golden figs, Mission figs, Apricots, Peaches

Steep Time: 4 minutes

First Sip Thought: “Sweet & silky treat.”

Smell:The aroma of the dry leaves is pretty pleasant. As the leaves begin to steep, I gather a scent that is mellow but I am still able to notice sweet notes from the figs, peaches and apricots.

Taste:It’s been oolong time since I had a tea with figs in it (haha, too corny?)I will admit I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed this tea. I was worried that I would be turned away by the figs in this oolong but to me that is what made this tea so exquisite! It is an interesting combination that works quite well. While the dark oolong is the star with its earthy and silky texture, the figs, apricots and peaches enhanced the flavours nicely. The figs are noticeable through each sip more than the apricots and peaches. I can get a hint of peaches every now and then but the figs play a bigger role in this blend which makes for a naturally sweet taste. It is always nice to have a tea blend that doesn’t mask away the actual tea but also keeps the ingredients real and not just artificial flavourings. I do not think this tea would have been as enjoyable without its real ingredients. That special touch gives this tea the uniqueness and the “freshly picked” flavours it deserves.

I first enjoyed this treat after Christmas dinner and was impressed with its dessert like qualities. With its mellow characters, it was the perfect end to a big meal and accompanied my pie nicely as it did not overpower.

Verdict: 4.5 out of 5 tea leaves

The tea market and the industry have made it clear that transparency is the way of the future – but what is transparency? I have been building a culture of transparency in the agriculture supply chain since 2010. At first I was a lone ranger; but now I see almost … Continue reading

At the Tea Table with Actress Andrea Bang of Kim’s Convenience

Andrea Bang

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.

Two Types of Major College scholarships

Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).

The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
